FC Sochaux-Montbéliard striker Santos is a serious doubt for the French club's UEFA Cup Group D game against Newcastle United FC on 25 November.
The Tunisian international pulled a thigh muscle in training on Tuesday and is expected to miss the forthcoming league matches against SM Caen, FC Istres and AS Monaco FC. He now faces a race to be fit for the visit of Newcastle as Sochaux look to build on their 2-0 Matchday 1 win at FC Dinamo Tbilisi. Santos, 25, has scored four goals this season, including one in the first-round tie against Stabæk IF.
